Kenmore Elite Trio 795.7756 /7757 problem

I purchased the Kemore Elite Trio and it was delivered on Friday. Two days later (Sunday) I purchased food and ice cream and loaded my items into my new refrig. That was at 1pm. At 9pm the ice cream was soft as if I had left on the counter to defrost enough to serve. I put a thermometer in the freezer and it registerd at 19 degrees, the frig section is reading 50 degrees. On the control panel, the freezer is set for -2 degrees and the frig for 37 degrees. Please help. I have looked thru my owners manual, and it doesn't seem to solve my problem. It also talks about air ducts but gives no indication where these ducts are located. Thanks.

Re: Kenmore Elite Trio 795.7756 /7757 problem

I had the same problem, freezer full of groceries defrosting or crisper drawer freezing produce. Sears Appliance Repair sent servicemen out twice and both times I was assured the problem was fixed. After freezing produce the third time I insisted they come and get the faulty appliance. The replacement has worked perfectly since day 1. INSIST ON A REPLACEMENT

If you are getting water from water dispenser on door, but no water into the freezer icemaker... here is what worked for me (simplified, for i took extra-work steps that were not necessary).
pull your kenmore trio (ours is 25cu ft, french-door with bottom freezer, purchased dec 2006) out so you have access to the back. Turn off water supply. Take out two screws that hold water supply to icemaker injector tube on the back of the frige; this is about 2ft above floor, and a straight-shot from back into the icemaker. With screws out, you can take off the rubber boot from the tube, then pull the tube straight out the back. The tube is probably plugged with ice. Turn-off the icemaker (inside the freezer section). Re-insert the tube... give a few hours for temps to stabilize. Then turn on the icemaker, and turn on water supply.

Probably a simpler solution would be... remove everything from frige and freezer. Turn off Kenmore Trio for a day or so (remove power, open doors). Turn back on, and let stabilize for hours, then restock the machine.

I have just purchased a Samsung 636L Refrigerator and my icemaker doesn't seem to work. Help please.

Hello Roseanna;
My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.
I require the complete model number to see what you have. The model number is on the wall in the fresh food (refrigerator section)
First, if you have just purchased this unit is it is under warrantee, where a service technician will come to your home at no charge and fix the problem.
I am going to take a guess, having serviced Samsung refrigerators for years, the type icemaker that you have. I believe you may have a ice maker in a small compartment.
Usually a ice maker will start after the temperature is above 40 degrees F. If this is the ice maker I think it is; in the front of the ice maker, on the bottom, there is a small red square button. This is the ice maker cycle button.
Push the cycle button and listen to hear the water fill the icemaker. Hopefully, the installers had just never done this.
Do you have a water dispenser? Is the water dispensing?
If you do not have a water dispenser, then perhaps the installers either did not connect the water line nor turned the water valve to open.
If the ice maker does not cycle, and the water supply is open, chances are you have a bad ice maker.
I have gone on service calls where the unit was delivered one day and I am there the every next day. On these service call I have found bad compressors, bad control boards, and yes - bad ice makers.

Kemore elite trio buzzing noise

I am sorry to say the you do need to call for service, to many variables to put here. LG, the manufacturer, has several things that would have to be checked from compressor start device to main board. quicker and cheaper in the long run to call.

Kenmore Elite Trio Refrigerator not cooling

No, it is not a failed condenser. You need to see if the compressor is running though. When it runs you shaould have a fan in the freezer running, a fan underneath the fridge running, and the compressor should be running. I would be willing to bet that either the compressor is bad, or the start relay on the compressor.

Hello margrek


Ice has bad odor and taste.

1• Ice has picked up odor or
flavor from strong food stored
in refrigerator or freezer.
2• Water running to ice maker
has poor taste or odor.
3• Ice not used frequently enough.
4• Cover foods tightly. Discard stale ice. Ice maker will
produce fresh supply.
5• Add filter to water supply line. Consult a water purifying
7• Discard stale ice.

We have a Whirlpool gb22dk refrigerator freezer. The bottom freezer keeps meat frozen but will not keep sea food ice cream bread ect frozen. This fridge came with our house which we purchased 2 years ago...

1st.Check the freezer door gasket for any place it maybe torn or not making a 100% seal when you close the door.That would make temperature drop. 2nd.take off bottom kick plate so you can look under the refrigerator.Using a flashlight make sure there is not alot of lint / dust stuck on the coils .If there is remove it carefully and you will see temperature lower. PLEAS RATE THIS!
